What you'll do

Get off the beaten path and experience LA breweries like a local. We'll skip the tourist spots and show you the places the other tours don't go to. Go beyond the places where Yelp or Google will take you (it's where the other tours will take you also).

Find the hidden gems in DTLA and the best beer in the area. Love sour beer or excited to talk mixed-fermentation styles? We'll peel back the curtain and show you where the magic is made (hint: it has a lot of barrels).

What's the difference between an ale and a lager? What are hops? What makes a pilsner a pilsner? Why does this beer taste like bananas? What's a foudre? What's slow beer?

We'll answer all these and more.

Sample beers from two great downtown LA breweries with a local beer expert. We'll taste 8 different styles of beer and talk about flavors, ingredients, how fresh craft beer gets made.

We'll get a behind-the-scenes tour and Q&A on how beer gets made. We'll give all the beer knowledge you can handle, while having a ton of fun, of course!
Other things to note
We always encourage responsible consumption and STRONGLY encourage you to Uber/Lyft to and from the breweries.
